Ivan does not remember life before the mall, but when the baby elephant Ruby enters his life, Ivan finds himself taking care of her and working on a plan to take Ruby away from their abusive owner.

Cranston will be part of the cast, playing the mean owner of the mall who is cruel to his animal performers, reported Empire online.

Thea Sharrock is directing the project.
